Geocache Description:

The two locations you need to visit will guide you to something both quite amazing and puzzling as well. I hope you enjoy the experience. The cache itself is small and contains the usual goodies.

To find “Apollo 11” proceed to the listed co-ordinates and carry out the following.

1. Count the number of small diameter vertical bars, this is A.

2. Multiply A by 2. Look in this direction in degrees magnetic and record what animal you see.

If the animal is a horse then B=1
If the animal is a Eagle then B=2
If the animal is a Dog then B=3

3. What material is the animal made from?

If the material is Wood then C=1
If the material is Brick then C=2
If the material is Stone then C=3

4. Again using the number of vertical bars, find the following answers.

Multiply (A by B), then add (3 x C) = aaa
Take A and subtract (5 times B) = bbb

Cache location is S 37.57. aaa E 144.26. bbb

There is a fair bit of walking and a fair amount of driving required to complete this cache.
Note also, the route to the final waypoint is one way.
If you arrive outside the hours the gates are open then your walking distance increases dramatically, so as I was instructed in a recent Derringer cache "time your approach well" and I hope you enjoy the object to which I am guiding you.
